Poll: Christie popular, deserves re-election

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - October 17, 2012

The Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday shows 56 percent of registered voters approve of the job Christie is doing and 52 percent think he deserves to be re-elected.

The Republican governor himself has not said whether he'll seek a second term next year.

The poll also looked at possible Democratic challengers to Christie. The top prospect, Newark Mayor Cory Booker, trailed Christie by 4 points, while state Sen. Dick Codey came in second, 6 points behind.

The telephone survey of 1,405 registered voters was taken Oct. 10-14 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.
